Pitch plays a significant role in any sports, with some players and teams being uncomfortable playing on specific fields. The opposing team can take this to their advantage and give a pitch which is unfavorable to the other side.
Indian cricket players have a history of struggling on grass. If India gets a pitch which has grass, there are chances of Indian players not doing well. They don’t play swing well on it and their batting wobbles. England can use it in their favor and give India a pitch with grass.
England has a record of playing well at Edgbaston, and likewise, India has the worst record on it. With the last 13 matches played here, England has just lost one. India has mostly lost their ODI matches here, and this gives the England players an enormous boost of confidence. India was able to win just one out of the six matches played here.
With respect to tossing, the team which wins the toss is likely to choose bowling to take advantage of the field’s moisture and make it challenging for the opposing team.
With many Indian players getting injured, it might cause trouble for India. With ace bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and JaspritBumrah missing the first few matches due to injuries, it is undoubtedly going to be a matter of concern to the Indian team. These fast bowlers are contributory to Indian overseas matches.
The English conditions suit Bhuvneshwar well, and he has a history of taking many wickets. He’s also an asset when it comes to batting and has a record of being the third highest run-scorer. His absence will undeniably impact the team’s overall strength.
Hope was with players such as JaspritBumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar as CheteshwarPujara, Murali Vijay, Dhawan and Kohli could not play well and have struggled here.
Presence of brilliant England players
Presence of certain England players will hamper India’s win. England Players like Root and Cook had made it extremely difficult for Indian players last time, and three are high chances of history repeating itself.
Root has scored well and was instrumental for the England team against India. Initially, he could not pick up deliveries which hindered his scores, which even lead to the team dropping him out of the third T20. However, in the later stage, he picked up his form and delivered back to back hundreds. He could easily dodge the challenges by the Indian players well, and this was a large gratuity for the England team. Even an ace player like Cook has made it extremely challenging for the Indian team with his running scores.
Owing to such conditions, the Indian team has to work very hard to make a comeback. These observations will help with the predictions of online betting in India.
